    I want to do some research and find out exactly what the DVC is and what it entails, cost, etc. Is there a link on this site for the DVC?

    We have several DVC forums on the DISboards; you can start with these:

    DVC - Operations
    DVC - Planning
    DVC - Mousecellaneous

    I'd also recommend ordering the DVD and information packet from the Disney Vacation Club site.

    here is some research material to get you started:

    here is a link to a basic DVC FAQ.

    here is another FAQ

    here is a link to the point charts for the different DVC resorts to figure out how many points you need.

    buying a DVC is like buying a car: you pay upfront for the car...then you also pay annual costs (called maintenance fees or annual dues for DVC) to maintain the car for oil changes/washes, etc.

    for pricing/buying information:

    here is a thread for understanding the general differences between buying resale and direct.

    here is (usually accurate) current pricing for contracts purchased directly.

    here is one link for resale listings.

    here is a link to historical annual dues per point for the different DVC resorts.

    here are some general information you might find interesting:

    is DVC for me?

    here is a thread for more info about choosing a home resort.

    and if you are ready for slightly more advanced information:

    here is a thread for understanding use year.
